did you hear about the italian chef who died?
he pasta way
he just ran out of thyme
here today, gone tomato
his wife is still upset, cheese still not over it
we never sausage a tragedy coming
ashes to ashes, crust to crust
there’s just not mushroom for italian chefs in today’s world
mostly I think it’s just a case of an abnormally single-focused deity. Most of the Greek gods have a lot of different fields. Ares is war. That’s it. Just war. That’s what he cares about. That’s exclusively what he cares about. So why would he care who the fuck you are as long as war’s involved? You think he’s gonna go “ooh I have a whole bunch of soldiers here to bring around to my cause and use to cause lots of brilliant mayhem, but they’re FEMALE soldiers, nevermind”?
I’ll point out, for the record, that nobody has yet to take me up on that challenge to provide evidence to the contrary re: feminist Ares.
The memoirs of his coreligionists from that time quote him as saying things like homosexual men can’t be witches, “passing power from man to man” is why the Templars “fell into sin”, etc. Google is useful in it.
This is actually brilliant
well, uh. there isn’t a Hell in Judaism. period.
the absolute closest we get is the Lake of Fire, where Azazel is forced to stay. that’s it.

Man it’s terrible how much the Wiccans express their Wicca, isn’t it?
They’re always, like, living by the values of the God and Goddess and promoting the stuff they care about shaping their lives on their teachings and shit.
Like damn, what are they thinking o.o
except the worship of Ares isn’t inherently misogynistic the way Wicca is
nice false equivalency there
Now I’m genuinely curious… How do you exactly view Ares? I may be viewing him wrong, but… From what I’ve read, I’ve seen him as the portrait for patriarchy. Maybe that’s not the right way to put it… But manly? Not really caring for the equality of women? Excuse my wording, I’m not sure how else to say it. I’m actually curious about what you think.
Thank you! I remembered seeing a post that talked about Ares… I’ve read through it, and I understand now. It’s actually really cool. I know you’re not stupid. You’re really intelligent when it comes to Greek Mythology. How long have you been studying, exactly? Do you have any books to recommend? Heck, websites?
we still aren’t friends and I still don’t like you
